We love this dish. Everyone I serve it to wants the recipe. The salty pretzels really put the pizzaz in it.
Pretzel crust - yummy! Cream cheese layer - great! Jello layer - not impressed at all. In fact, I felt the jello really ruined the dish. Will use the bottom two layers again and work on a better top layer for next time.
I had so many 'yumms' from the people who ate this dessert and was asked for the recipe. It took a litttle time to make at different intervals but was worth every minute.
This is very good. I had to make more the next day. The family ate it up all in one night.
I have had this recipe for about 15/20 yrs. It's easy and wonderful, great for potluck. 1st dessert to go.
I loved it and so did my family. They are asking me to make it again and this time more of it..thank you for the recipe
I made this recipe with the cranberry jello. I also added whole cranberries to the jello and I also took a can of large mandarin oranges and broke them down a bit in the food processor. I added orange extract to the cranberry jello. I also added some almonds to the pretzel crust when preparing it..I also processed them to a small chop and added them when I finished with the pretzels. Needless to say this was a huge hit on Thanksgiving...traditional yet new. I have made this several times and always get rave reviews. What I like about this recipe is that you can be versatile and creative with it...Patience in letting it set up though...trick is to make sure the jello is thick enough to pour over the topping..then you won't have crust issues.
TIP: The creamy middle should be thick and you have to make sure the edges are sealed tight before you pour the jello over it. If the cream cheese mixture doesn't have a tight seal to the sides, jello will seep into the crust and make it soggy. I have made this a hundred times and never had the problem but that is the main thing to remember and that's the biggest rant I hear about this recipe.
Ron & Austin loved this!
